So, there's Barbie. And there's a Popstar. And then there's the Princess & Popstar, which is the party that 4-year old Adrienne was having. My good friend Tara requested a guitar-shaped cake for her daughter's special occasion. Yep. I was up for the challenge.
A few issues surfaced while making this cake. It had to serve about 25 people, which isn't a whole heck of a lot of cake. Maybe a ten-inch cake would suffice and there'd be leftovers for sure. But if I made an 8-inch cake, I think that would be a little small and you wouldn't get the full effect of a GUITAR! So, I decided on two 10-inch square cakes and lined them up next to each other. The big part of the guitar is carved from one whole 10-inch cake. The handle is actually two pieces of cake (10-inch cake sliced in half). And this is a chocolate cake with chocolate fudge and Oreo filling.
The second issue I had was where to put the cake when it was done? No cake board I could find was big enough! So, off to Ben Franklin Crafts I went to do my searching. They had large pieces of foam board ready to go, and that's what I purchased. I thought it worked out perfectly!
And here's the Princess. Or is she the Popstar? Whomever she is, she's the ADORABLE birthday girl!
Make a wish!
Thanks for the great party, Adrienne! I'm so happy I got to be a part of your special day!
